McCabe & Mrs. Miller

McCabe & Mrs. Miller ★★★★★

"If a frog had wings, he wouldn't bounce his ass so much."

McCabe & Mrs. Miller is an elegantly pastoral to the old northwest. Cluttered with rain, mud, snow, characters weaving in and out of a pair of entrepreneurs, nicely underplayed to perfect pitch by Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, as they attempt to make a successful business providing booze, gaming and prostitution to a burgeoning mining town. Leonard Cohen's lyrics of lamentation mesh perfectly with Robert Altman's laconic camerawork as it flows along the landscape. Overall, the beautiful imagery of mud, blood, snow are the images and instances that will remain with you forever.
